Researchers around the globe want to investigate the minute structures of materials and their transient behaviors. The X-ray Free Electron Laser (XFEL) Project is doing its part by accelerating electrons to 99.9999 percent the speed of light in a system that spans a length of more than 600m. The joint project between the Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute and RIKEN, another Japanese research organization, measures oscillation and other parameters with a Tektronix RSA6114A Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer, which provides both speed and memory capacity. The Tektronix analyzer will be used on the 60 klystrons which should begin operating in 2010.
Time was when sports equipment was made only from common, everyday, low-tech materials. But now sports equipment has a new, high-tech ingredient that is helping players take their game to the next level.
A humanoid diving robot has recovered treasure from the wreck of French King Louis XIV's flagship, untouched for nearly 400 years. The bot not only looks somewhat human-shaped, it's also got stereoscopic humanlike vision, artificial intelligence, and haptic force feedback.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
